Into The Dark: Delivered Review: A Dark Mother’s Day Story

0

Into The Dark: Delivered is one of the best movies of the series. What starts out predictable quickly takes a turn for the dark side — and it is awesome.

Into The Dark: Delivered starts out like you might expect. A pregnant woman who meets someone she thinks is a friend who then betrays her. The beginning is very predictable, but it quickly changes and things you don’t expect to happen, happen. Into The Dark is one of my favorite series because I love dark and twisted tales. Pooka was at the top of my list, but Delivered just might have taken that spot.

WARNING: Minor spoilers ahead for Into The Dark: Delivered.

I was intrigued from the beginning, even though it seemed like something I have watched a million times. We have a pregnant woman, and another woman who is pretending to be pregnant. Sure this is a “twist” about twenty minutes in, but I called it from the first few minutes. This wasn’t a problem for me though as I was anxious for the reveal, and just how it would be done. 

I did not expect it so early on, which made me realize that things were about to get crazy. And they did. And it was awesome. Of course the husband had to go first. That just makes sense. But what happened next, I never could have guessed. Jenny actually planned on trying to raise the baby with Valarie? Did she just expect Stockholm syndrome to kick in immediately or what? 

At about the one hour mark, Delivered takes a totally unexpected turn. Up until this point, it was more or less predictable. Which doesn’t mean it was bad, by any means, but I knew what was going to happen next. What we learn about Jenny completely took me by surprise. I don’t want to give any spoilers here but from that moment on, I had no clue what was going to happen next.

Overall Thoughts

While Delivered was somewhat predictable, it is more than worth a watch. Once things take a turn for the even darker side… it gets REALLY good. I had no idea how it was going to end and literally gasped out loud at one point. 

The last 15 minutes or so do get a bit gory, which is right up my alley so I loved it. But keep that in mind if you have a weak stomach. This is a great thriller of a story, and I recommend it for anyone who loves this sort of thing. The best this season, by far — and quite possibly of the whole Into The Dark series!
